…from ideation and creation from scratch, to testing and tweaking, I love working with clients on all parts of recipe development and testing!
My favorite thing is heading into one of my kitchens, (especially my rustic and vintage outdoor cookhouse with my grandma’s double oven stove), where I do my happy dance while playing with food. That is what most makes my heart happy. Whether your needs are for the consumer audience or as a wholesaler marketing
to restaurants, caterers, grocers and others, my experiences cover them all, and it would be my pleasure to get into my kitchen and
​happy dance my skills for you and your products!
